Key Personnel

Stephen Willoughby

Founding Principal, Straits International School Rawang

It is a privilege to be the founding principal of Straits International School, Rawang (SISR). I am very excited about the endless possibilities. As principal, it is my duty and honour to be able to inspire students and teachers alike. I believe in leading by example. Therefore, I am fully committed to achieving excellence not only for myself but also for all members of the school community. I have held a number of senior leadership positions throughout the world, and I will use this experience to ensure that Straits International School continues to provide an outstanding educational experience for all our young people.

It is no secret that every child can learn. As educators, we must strive to find ways to include all our students. If we can teach our students to be passionate learners who are not afraid to answer questions or question answers, we will indeed be successful in achieving our school's vision. I have been personally struck by the school motto 'Non Mihi, Non Tibi, Sed Nobis / Not For You, Not For Me, But For Us'. I fully intend to develop a caring team ethos here in Straits Rawang where everyone will work together as a team for the benefit of the students.

As a school, we seek to work with parents in helping students to enter the world as responsible, mature, and engaged members of society. This starts from the moment a child enters our school. Our aim is to provide and encourage all children to learn and develop independently, facilitating their personal growth, and instilling in each of them a lifelong passion for learning.

Student Testimonials


Year 4

Hi, my name is Hayley! 

I joined SIS last year and now I'm in Year 4. I love how much space there is for me and my friends, especially at playtime. My favourite subject is Science because of all the experiments we get to do in the Science lab, it's super fun! My teachers are really helpful and they listen to me if I have any questions or problems. My younger brother and sister also go to Straits and they like it too, although I think I love school the most!


Year 11 (IGCSE)

As a senior student, I would say that there is a bag full of positives about this school that I could rave about. However, one that strikes me the most is the hospitality given by the teachers. It was never a struggle to mingle around with the teachers as they are all extremely friendly and welcoming. I never felt left out as the teacher’s always ensured that every student was involved. I will always cherish my experiences here.
